This is a period framed document that was awarded to a Mr. and Mrs. Heinrich Riemenschneider on the occasion of their Golden Anniversary. The document features Braunschweig’s Coat-of-Arms in full color at its top. The pertinent information on the Riemenschneiders is below. The document is dated 22 Mai 1931. Below that we see Ernst August’s signature, boldly signed in brown ink. Beneath it is his formal title, “Herzog zu Braunschweig und Lüneburg.” The document measures 8 3/4″ x 5 1/2.” The frame measures 9 1/2″ x 6 1/4.” A hook on the reverse is available for hanging it on the wall. It is a very handsome document with a clear signature from a member of German Royalty. Ernst August was married to Kaiser Wilhelm II’s only daughter, Viktoria Luise. [We also have a German-language biography of Viktoria Luise released from1970’s, available on our PAPER MERCHANDISE PAGE (click here to view). It has her signature. The biography features many wonderful photos of the couple throughout their marriage]. Even though German royalty officially lost their thrones, they still had a place in the lives of the German populace. Salutations such as these were highly prized.
